Educational Offerings

Discover the fascinating world of mining in the tours of the permanent exhibition, in the visitor's mine and with an ascension to the headframe. We'd like to give you a warm welcome - both above and below ground - and present various thematic educational and cultural offerings.

During the autumn holidays, our visitor's mine is open to you from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You go underground on your own and follow the tour. You do not need to book or register for your visit. You explore the mine on your own.

Please note that program changes or cancellations may occur at short notice. Please inform yourself on our homepage and during opening hours (Tues. to Sun. between 09:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.) by calling the Visitor Service at +49 234 5877-126.
